Announcing Logz.io Open 360: One Platform for Open Source Observability

Today, I’m thrilled to announce the introduction of Logz.io Open 360™. This is a major step in our journey. Open 360 is a unified platform for modern engineering teams requiring end-to-end observability across logs, metrics and traces—delivered in an intuitive user interface. Open 360™ is specifically designed to enable engineers to have deep monitoring and insights into distributed systems.


An Introduction to Apache Parquet

A look at what Parquet is, how it works and some of the companies using its optimization techniques as a critical component in their architecture. As the amount of data being generated and stored for analysis grows at an increasing rate, developers are looking to optimize performance and reduce costs at every angle possible. At the petabyte scale, even marginal gains and optimizations can save companies millions of dollars in hardware costs when it comes to storing and processing their data.


Open source and cybersecurity: from prevention to recovery

So you have just installed the latest antivirus and turned on your shiny new firewall. Now your organisation is fully secure, right? The reality is that all the security products in the world will never be able to fully protect your data centre or your business from security threats. Because of the asymmetry between attackers and enterprises, cybersecurity is a problem that can never be solved and is never going away.

Native OSS instrumentation: OpenTelemetry and the Future of Observability - Part 4

How does OpenTelemetry relate to open source software libraries? If you are an OSS maintainer, how should you provide observability for your end users? DM me there if you have any questions, or leave a comment below.

3 ways IT can secure open source software

Critics of open source software have long argued that giving everyone access to a project’s source code creates security issues. But in active projects with highly engaged communities, the opposite is actually true: Open source software helps organizations become more secure. That said, any piece of technology can be exploited.


AppSignal's Future with OpenTelemetry

AppSignal is a strong supporter of open-source technology. We owe so much of our modern world to the unseen, hard-working software developers who build and maintain the many technologies that make everything from reading this article to sending a message from your phone possible. That's why we're investing in OpenTelemetry, the open-source standard for telemetry data collection, rather than developing our own independent standard.

Cloudify | Introduction to Backstage

Many web-scale companies such as Spotify, AirBand, and Twillio are facing the speed paradox:“The faster you grow, the more fragmented and complex your software ecosystem becomes. And then everything slows down again.” To deal with that challenge, they chose to develop their own internal development platform aimed specifically at increasing their development productivity by taking a more opinionated approach in which developers get to use infrastructure resources. Spotify backstage is an open-source project led by Spotify that provides a set of tools and a framework.
